I`m a fan of Blood and Sand and i enjoy Tiki Ti`s version with a splash of tequila on top.
Good Ol' Jamie made one recently... I tried it and it is fantastic.
Why the long face?
Jamie Boudreau has done some interesting work with Heering over the years. For one, he's shown that Heering is capable of helping mitigate enormous quantities of aromatic bitters. Take a gander at his Pax Sax Sarax. Yes, there’s a full 1/4 oz of Peychaud’s in there, and yes, it’s a damn fine aperitif. In fact, I think I’ll go mix one right now!
[Whoops! Missed the second page of responses, so this is post is somewhat redundant with the one above it. Sorry.]
I have enjoyed this version of Blood and Sand lately:
* 1 ounce Yamazaki 10
* 1 ounce fresh-squeezed blood-orange juice
* ¾ ounce Cherry Heering
* ¾ ounce sweet vermouth
* splash tequila to top
I too am a fan of the Blood and Sand since I first found it in Charles Schumann's book. Still the recipe I prefer.
1 1/2 oz. OJ, 1/4 oz. Heering, 3/4 oz. Antica vermouth, 3/4 oz. Glenmorangie 10
Also, no mention of the great Singapore Sling. Or is that one just a given?
1/3 gin, 1/3 heering, 1/3 benedictine
I also really like Heering with Campari.

A true [?] Singapore Sling is a tad more complicated then that :->
I serve it in two variants:
6 oz Coca Cola over ice in a tall glass
1 dash of Steen's Ribbon Cane Syrup (to make the Coke taste like original Coke from years ago)
1 1/2 oz Medium Rum
1/2 oz lime juice (or a wedge of lime squeezed into glass)
1/2 oz Cherry Herring (which is basically a Cuba Libra with Cherry Herring).
Cherry Herring Cocktail
3 oz premium vodka
1 oz Cointreau
1 oz Cherry Herring
Add ingredients to cocktail shaker. Add ice, wrap with towel and shake briskly for 30 seconds.
Decant into a Martin Glas, and garnish with a 2" by 1/2" piece of orange peel.
JB, your first variant is very close to my Rum & Cherry Coke
1 oz Cola Syrup (available as a stomach medicine on Amazon)
1 tsp Depaz cane syrup
1/2 oz Cherry Heering
1 1/2 oz Flor de Caña white rum
Build in glass, top w/ 6 ozs soda from siphon, add ice, Luxardo Cherry for garnish
This same drink, without the rum, I call an Improved Cherry Coke and I serve it to people who want a super-low alcohol drink. The Cherry Heering adds just enough alcohol to a glass of Coke that folks can taste it without getting buzzed. Plus they get to see me mixing three ingredients and using a soda siphon, so they feel like they're getting more of a drink than just a glass of Coke. And the Luxardo Cherry adds a lot.
ok this is my absolute favorite recipe with cherry heering
2 oz El jimador anejo tequila
.5 oz Cherry heering
.5 oz sweet vermouth
a different take on a manhattan
How about some sort of take on the Singapore Sling (or Straits Sling, for that matter)?
20ml cherry brandy
2 tsp Benedictine
2 tsp Cointreau
60ml pineapple juice
20ml lime juice
2 dashes grenadine
dash Angostura bitters.
Shake and strain into ice-filled tall glass, top with soda and garnish with a cherry and orange wedge.
This seems to work okay if one substitutes bourbon for the gin, reduces the pineapple content, and uses pomegranate liqueur instead of grenadine.
I've been making these at home lately
Mystic Wood - From Ten-01 here in Portland Oregon
2 ounces rye whiskey (Sazerac 6-year-old)
½ ounce cherry liqueur (Heering)
½ ounce apricot brandy (Rothman & Winter)
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Stir ingredients over ice and strain into a small chilled cocktail glass or champagne coupe.

Just catching up on this thread after being away for awhile -- many great drinks here! I started thinking about CH again when I read that Campari might purchase Wild Turkey brand. First thought, make a cocktail: Wild Turkey Bourbon, Campari and something... nah.
Second thought Wild Turkey Rye, Campari and Cherry Heering. The previous posts in this thread suggest it just might work. Need to work on it
Trying to find a good drink
